Abstract: The need for content-based image retrieval has increased with increment size and volume of digital images. This paper introduces the graph-based approach in order to retrieve the content-based image. In the proposed method, an image presents by a set of regions, while comparison of images are posing, each image represents by a graph, hence the estimation of the region correspondence transform into an graph matching problem. In addition, by using and image distance criteria, the difference between images obtained. Experimental results show that the proposed graph-theoretic image matching performance is acceptable.
